Solder wick

You can use solder wick along with the desoldering vacuum tool to clean up any soldering mistakes. Just put it on the wrongly soldered joint and press on it with a hot soldering iron, then it will soak up the excess solder like a sponge!
Useful for fixing solder joints when they cannot be easily reached with a solder sucker.
